This is the fatberg that we are hoping to acquire a section of for our collection. The fatberg, found in a sewer in Whitechapel weighs 130 tonnes (equivalent to 11 double decker buses) and is 250 metres long. Experts say it will take weeks to break up and remove. .
Composed of oil, fat, nappies and baby wipes it's a stark reminder of what we waste and how things like this can damage the infrastructure of our cities. Learn more about how we can all live in a more environmentally sustainable way, ensuring the cities of the future are good places to live in our free exhibition The City is Ours and accompanying events from the City Now City Future season. .
